Since it was founded in 2012, Today's Mixtape Festival has showcased a variety of artists in punk-rock, indie, hardcore, and everything in between at venues around Long Island (with the addition of an Oakland, Calif. festival in March of 2014). This spring, it was announced that the Summer 2015 edition of the festival would take place on Saturday and Sunday August 15 and 16 at The Emporium in Patchogue, N.Y. After the initial lineup announcement in May that included The Movielife and Every Time I Die as headliners, this week Today's Mixtape Festival announced the final day-by-day line-ups for the festival.
The Movielife will headline the first day (Saturday, August 15). Joining them for support that day will be Kill Your Idols, Crime In Stereo, Incendiary, A Loss For Words, Iron Chic, Giants At Large, Gates, and Microwave. Every Time I Die will headline the second day of the festival (Sunday, August 16), where they'll be joined by Real Friends, Stray From The Path, State Champs, Counterparts, On Broken Wings, Suburban Scum, Knocked Loose, Cryptodira, Gnarwolves, Brigades, Gatherers, Broadside, and Commonwealth.
Founded in 1997 in Long Island, The Movielife originally broke up in 2003, but announced in December of last year that they would be reuniting. Though they've since played New York City (with two back-to-back shows at Irving Plaza in February), Today's Mixtape Festival will be the band's first Long Island show in thirteen years. Every Time I Die formed in 1998 in Buffalo, N.Y., and has released seven full-length albums to date. Their most recent album From Parts Unknown was released last July via Epitaph Records. Today's Mixtape Festival comes in the middle of the Common Vision Tour, which Every Time I Die is headlining with Real Friends, Counterparts, Gnarwolves, Brigades, and Gatherers as support on the tour.
